My next few months are filling up quickly. I already RSVP'd to the Night of Writing Dangerously (and am still fundraising to dress like my Twitter icon!), but a couple of nights ago I took the next big step and bought the plane ticket to San Francisco.

I didn't mean to. I was talking to a couple of folks about the event and found myself checking flight costs again, as I had been doing casually over the past few weeks, when I spotted a flight that fit my wants and needs (Fri-Mon, arriving in San Francisco early, not a red-eye return to Atlanta or leaving San Francisco at the crack of dawn, nonstop--oh, and wifi on both flights) perfectly for a much better price than what I had been spotting over the past few weeks. Low enough that I wouldn't kick myself too hard if the price went down any further.

So I did some quick math, consulted Bing Travel's prediction to see what it said about buying, and caved and bought. And now it's officially official: I am going to the Night of Writing Dangerously in San Francisco.

My other weekends between now and the end of Nano are also filling up quickly. I count two completely free weekends between now and the beginning of Nano, but those weekends will fill up as Nano approaches or non-Nano friends want to see me in a non-noveling context. Even my Nano weekends are slowly filling up. Between Nanolanta shenanigans, the Night of Writing Dangerously, and 50k weekend, only the first weekend remains fully available, and I'm sure it'll fill up with write-ins as November approaches. Meatspace non-Wrimos, if you want to see me before December, you better see me soon or take advantage of my flexible schedule to see me during the week because soon it's going to be really hard to do so unless you're also doing Nano.

This means December will be a breath of fresh air. Won't that be exciting?

Oh but we are in the same boat :)

Weekends of November will be extremely busy, with Nanolanta during the second weekend, NoWD during the third and 50kweekend (please, tell me it doesn't fall on the same weekend than NoWD!)

December will be used to sleep and recover - ah wait! Finals! + 3 rock shows! XD Sleep will come eventually :)

50k weekend is the weekend after NOWD. I probably wouldn't be able to do it if it were the same weekend. That's crazy talk.

I was looking at my calendar last night with all the plans and not yet set in stone plans for the next few months and thought, "Yeah, non-Wrimo friends may want to know about this now."

But we can do this! And we'll get to see each other. Twice! :D

I should like to have coffee at you if possible while you are in SF!

And I with you! I'll be there Friday morning-Monday morning and should have most of Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday morning free before the Night of Writing Dangerously itself, but anything could change between now and then.

I recommend Borderlands Books, also, if you want to see a really awesome SF/F bookstore with hairless cats and an adjacent cafe. It is my favorite!

I've got it on my calendar now, and reminders set up, so we can poke things closer to the date! My work schedule is still in flux, as well.

Borderlands Books sounds like my kind of place. Books and caffeine? Count me in!
